WIP WEDNESDAY AND A WINNER

Happy Wednesday!  I've got several works in progress as usual. This week I've received 'squishy' mail three times! Blocks from the Simply Solids group are half here  : )


On the knitting front I bought yarn to make gifts for some of the girlies on my list.


I started and ripped out a little sweater for Janie twice, but I think I'm settled on this one.  click click click


My forest of trees is growing. There are several waiting for the trunks to be added.


Someone mentioned they couldn't see how the trees are 3D so here is a photo. After all the trees are pieced I need to sew little pinwheels in the corners


and another little project just for fun  : )


Thanks so much to everyone who left a comment on my give-away.   Mr. Random Number chose..........






Stephanie @ quarter Incher.  Congratulations Stephanie! I have sent you an e-mail.

As a side note there were so many comments that were 'no reply'.  If you didn't hear back from me it's because I had no way of reaching you  : (         I tried --really I did

I just love all the pretty yarn, especially the Vintage in pink.
Your tree quilt is looking good. How are you going to quilt it since I guess you don't want to flatten the 3d effect?
Have fun knitting!

Love those simply solids blocks! Your "little project" is very intriguing.

Needled Mom said...

Those little trees are wonderful as are the blocks. Great projects going on there.

The simply solid blocks are really fun!

Solid blocks are great, Carla! I didn't realize that your trees are 3D, how interesting - are they pockets for surprises? I love burlap and it's most beautiful with that white fabric! x Teje

Amy said...

I love your solid blocks! this will be so nice. Where did you find the pattern for the trees? and the beginnings of the sweater looks gorgeous!

Sewing Mom said...

Lots of fun sewing at your place. "Squishy" mail, love it! Looking forward to a little squishy mail of my own over the next few weeks, a little more fabric! The trees look great.
